What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

This is a repost from UI Meta, but it affects the SO site, the meta SO site and the ui.stackexchange.com site as well:

Not sure if this is the right forum, but there's an issue with the user listing page on IE8 where some of the users get squished together: ui.stackexchange user listing bug

stackoverflow user listing bug

Long standing bug. I know that I've reported it before, but I can't find a reference. Possibly it was on the original UserVoice site. –  tvanfosson Aug 24 '10 at 16:37

This isn't relevant anymore, since the user list page has since been overhauled, but just for the record, we did indeed put a workaround for this in place. I'll let the code speak for itself:

@* The following pretty useless rule is solely for the eigth iteration
   of a certain browser from Redmond. Forcing some content between the
   users (even if invisible) seems to stop a bug randomly overlapping
   two user infos (see e.g. http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/39353). *@
    .user-info:after
    {
        content:'.';
        height:0;
        display:block;
        overflow:hidden;
    }

@Ryan It could have been the answer to why you are missing an avatar.. –  Tyler Carter Aug 24 '10 at 16:10
    
@Ryan The distinction is pretty much non-existent on meta –  Michael Mrozek Aug 24 '10 at 19:50

This is a bug in IE8, not us.
